Do they love me in spite of me?

First of all...let's get the blackmail off my back. I keep getting threatened about our little Easter tragedy. So let's just put all the cards on the table. I KNOW that I am not a good mother so don't threaten me!
This is McFlys' Easter basket.

And this is McFly just as happy as can be! I bought the candy and crap, I just forgot to put it in the baskets with the cute grass and stuff the you vacuum up for months afterward. A cardboard box? Seriously? It didn't look that bad at the moment, but I will admit...not so good now.
I told her that I forgot to put them in baskets (as she was sitting there all dressed and ready for church) and she just rolled her eyes at me. Rolled her eyes? Where does she get this stuff?

At least Wheelchair Boy got a Tupperware bowl. A big one too...just sayin'...

This photo is just funny. He falls asleep everyday watching T.V. Here he is asleep with his only working finger still on the remote! Gotta love that sweet boy!
I can't keep going on about all my motherly sins, so back to the reason for this post. Now...I KNOW my one and only Homer loves me more than anything (except maybe golf...oh...and football...oh!...and the kids!) BUT! He committed the very worst of sins. Worse than cheating on me! The hurt from this is too deep to even explain!

See this?
This is probably THE LAST box of Sugar Free Snackwell's Shortbread Cookies in the U.S. of A.!
I order some from my friendly neighborhood Albertson's and got the last 3 cases from Nabisco that there was. They don't make them anymore...and this is my last box! I have been savoring these puppies sloooooowly!
My second to the last box was opened, and I was partaking in long intervals, and then it happened! One of Wheelchair Boy's friends came over to visit and brought his girlfriend. (This is a great 21yr old kid that lives down the street). Now please note that I love him to death. He comes and plays Madden with the Boy, takes him to the movies and just hangs out with him in between classes and work when he has time. So sweet and caring...I just love him...BUT...NOT enough to share my second-to-the-last box of cookies!
They were watching a movie and Homer gave them my cookies! I didn't know till the next day! I don't know that I can forgive him! And he rolled his eyes at me! Where do they get this? Is nothing sacred anymore? He won't even say he is sorry...he thinks I am petty! Hummp! Whatever. I can be petty if I want. I have not had sugar in over 5 years. I love those cookies and I am bitter that they quit making them. I need them. I love them. I want more!
OK, I feel better. So look at this cute baby quilt I made for the cutest little redheaded boy in our ward!
So easy! It is a Thimble Blossoms pattern.

How cute and squishy is he! His 2 brothers and sister call me Grandma Carrot. I just love them!
Which brings me to the point that I miss my grandbabies somethin' fierce. Maybe if they were here, I would have made better Easter baskets!
Just sayin'...

Listen, it's all about the goodies, not the packaging, and you did a great job in that area!

You do still suck as a great Easter Bunny, however.

1. I LOVELOVELOVE the quilt!
2. No sugar in 5 years... I am on week two and just today quitting caffeine. I feel great!
3. Why did those mer'fers quit making your cookies?
4. I just picked easter grass from the carpet on my walk to the computer. Sad.

I didn't do Easter basket either! Who's threatening you?! I'll take them out!
I LOVE that quilt-it's GORGEOUS!
I'm so SORRY about your cookies, those jerks. I totally understand, and you're not petty!
I love the picture with his finger on the remote still, that may or may not have happened to me before...

Homer and Queen said...

Thank you everyone for siding with me! I will make sure Homer reads this and pays for what he has done. There will be blood! (or diamonds can make it all better!)

Jen said...

You're not a bad mother...Im just sayin is all

Christine said...

Just toodled on over, and I'm thinking I'm insanely fond of you as well. :)

Amy Joy said...

Yes, PETTY! BUT rightfully so you have been eating those cookies for as long as I can remember. Yes, BAD MOMMY! BUT they are old, big kids so what do they care? I'm just surprised you didn't have the baskets sitting in the corner from last year. CRAP, on second thought maybe not BAD mom. You did give them sugar candy and not some old sugar free stuff you have laying around

Amy Joy said...

AND BTW Levi did really get a quilt from you. Someone else made it. He will feel left out if he doesn't get one like his brother and sister. What is you say.......Just sayin.
Grandma Carrot I love it why didn't I think of it?!

Amy Joy said...

CRAP I mean DID NOT REALLY get a quilt from you

H.K. said...

Hey, at least you gave them Easter Candy and goodies for Easter. I just forgot to give my son anything for Easter, the first in 17 years! So, I made it up to him and made his favorite breakfast...for a week!

Mother Goose said...

As long as there is chocolate all sins are forgiven. No one cares about the basket etc, just the goods in there.

Just for you on the off chance I am going to check around my local stores and see if they have any cases hangin' around.

I love your quilts. I love that you made it for that red head.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Yea... WHO CARES about the basket when you have a bucket or cardboard box full of GOODIES!!!

And again... love the quilt!

Crazy Cousin said...
